    I ordered a Gateway there and I got it in 5 days (I live in St. Louis, if you don't know that's in Missouri), and I think they ship in New York, so I would expect 3-4 days.

    Last week when? Monday? Friday? Saturday? ;-)

    They ship from Buffalo, NY. If it wasn't for the fact that you guys are all snowed in (slight exaggeration of the reports on the news I've seen), I would have expected it in a couple days maybe a week. Given the situation though, I'd probably give them a bit of extra time before I started sending angry "WTF, where's my shit!!!" emails.

    Did you get an email w/ the subject "ModChipsDirect: Order #XXXXX has been completed"? That bunch of numbers at the bottom next to the word note is a USPS tracking number. ;-)

    They don't offer free shipping. o.O

    <blink> I've bought a few from them as well 1 for me at GW launch and two more this past Christmas... I don't ever recall anything but the $4.50 via USPS option. Strange.

    Well I ordered my Sky3DS from them on Friday, still don't have anything, and there is no tracking. Shipping was expensive too, I think around $10.

    Took me 3-4 days to receive and I'm in Cali. They ship from Buffalo, NY so you should receive yours sooner if youre in NY..
